Our Special day was definitely one to remember forever!! Everything was better then expected and couldn't have asked for anything different!! The ultimate Highlight for me was when the Chapel doors opened and I saw the love of my life standing in front with tears in his eyes looking at me, I got butterflies in my stomach and fell in love all over again. It meant the world to me when I saw his tears and the biggest smile he ever had. Even thou everything went so quickly I still had the best time of my life and to this day I still can't believe a married my best friend, I am the luckiest person alive!
We went on Honeymoon the following day where my Husband surprised me with a week in Mauritius at the Canonnier Beachcomber Golf and Spa Resort. No words or pictures can describe how amazing it was, we did everything from canoeing to paragliding to getting a full body massage and snorkeling.
My wedding look was based on my personality and who I am, unique, natural and down to earth! My hair was up styled with a messy look, my make - up was done as natural as possible, my wedding dress was an off white/Ivory color made out of lace and almost like a princess dress, my shoes were a champagne color with hills, my lingerie were blue (for my something blue), I had a fine silver necklace on with a small pearl that went with my pearl earrings and veil.
We got married at Makiti Wedding and Function Venue, Sunset Venue in Kromdraai. We had our Ceremony and Reception there! We booked accommodation at the Venue for the night before and on the day for our Bridal party, Master of Ceremonies, Parents, Siblings and Gran Parents.
I just relaxed.
The Theme for our wedding was Golf and our colors were Pink, Turquoise and Champagne. The Chapel had cream rose petals down the aisle with small white wooden hearts hanging from every second row, on either side of the podium there were 2 pew stands with mixed flower bouquets, on the registration table we had our Unity candles, Unity sand and one Center piece from our guest tables and for confetti we used mixed pastel color rose petals with our bridal party holding Golf clubs at the exit. For our reception we had round guest tables with white damask table cloths and napkins, alternated pink and turquoise overlays, pink and blue lint on every second chair as tie backs, for our Center pieces we had round mirrors, white bird cages with pastel color flowers inside, blue candles, silver under plates and 2 printed menus per table. The main table was on the stage with white damask table cloths and napkins, King & Queen chairs, with 2 medium flower arrangements, a silver Mnr. & Mev. Hamman sign, silver underplates and our own champagne glasses. We also had a Candy table for Dessert and hired our own lighting and smoke machine, there was also a slush puppy machine, popcorn machine and Candy floss machine available at the Sherry Fountain.
My Husband was dressed in a Full Dark Grey Suite, long sleeve white shirt, Ivory tie and Cuff links, as for the Groomsmen they wore long dark cream pants, long white sleeve shirt and silver under jacket. They each received a buttonhole made out of Tee's and flowers. They got everything from Sedgars Vereeniging.
My Maid of Honour had a long Turquoise Infinity dress on with champagne sandals and my Bridesmaids had long Pink Infinity dresses on with champagne sandals, hair was curled and left hanging and make-up was done natural. I chose everything for them as I wanted them to look beautiful yet be comfortable.

As our photographers we used Status Studio, Mc Crea Media for Video and Kiekie Booth for Photobooth.
With the planning we did everything ourselves as I am an Events Coordinator and have been in the Industry for 4 years and also have my diploma in Events Management Level 4, so I chose to plan myself. On the day we had a coordinator included in our package who made sure everything went according to plan and assisted where possible.
Me and My Husband used our Golf Carts to get to the Chapel and a friend arranged a limo for us to take us to the airport the next day.
Makiti's Chef prepared our food from the Menu we chose. A friend Megan made our wedding cake with decor and Topper.
A family friend, Lee - Ann, did our Invitation, Table Names, Seating List, Guest Puzzle and printing.
After the formalities we had a huge party, awesome music and a lot of dancing. We hired in our Own DJ's (Brothers DJ & Sound) who provided sound, lighting and smoke machine. Me and my husband did not take any dance lessons we just went with the music.
